The delegation will present the Moroccan proposal to grant broad autonomy in the southern regions enabling the Saharan population to live in dignity and independence in handling their own affairs. Moreover, this proposal will end the fragmentation of families retained in the Tindouf camps and the continued violation of human rights inside. The International community will be asked to intervene and stop this human tragedy that took more than three generations and in particular to respond to the repeated call to Algeria to conduct census of the camps population.
It is worth mentioning that the Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs is an institution established by His Majesty King Mohammed VI in March 2006. It consists of 141 members representing all the Saharan society, and contributed to the drafting of autonomy in this sense. This proposal represents a sound and realistic solution to the Sahara conflict, which is a guarantee of the rights of all Saharawi political, social, economic and cultural rights.
The Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs plays an important role in the social and economic development in the Kingdom’s southern provinces.
